Hi Marco, how did you pull the bronze retainer/bushing holding the oil seal at the end of the axle? Couldn't mine off this weekend.

Inside or outside? Gpw does not have bronze bushings on the outside. If you mean the cups on the inside I left them. On the outside i had rubber retainers which i Pulled out with the back side of a hammer
